Companies suffer data losses not only through intentional data theft or malware that destroys their data. In most cases, such losses are caused by the negligent handling of data: Laptops are left in the taxi, USB sticks slip from the pocket, infected media are used within the company, sensitive data are transferred and saved without encryption etc. Often, the employees are not even aware of the consequences and therefore, they do not necessarily report such incidents. In 2010, in Great Britain alone, about 17,000 USB sticks were found in clothes that had been brought to a dry cleaner’s.
Even in cases of negligent actions the company risks know-how losses, competitive disadvantages, high penalties and major image losses in case of notifiable data losses (according to § 42 German Data Protection Act [BDSG], Section 42a, Obligation to notify in case of unlawful access to data).
Besides such data losses, companies are subject to and often underestimate related liability risks arising from copyright infringements and incompliance with licensing regulations, if corporate IT systems are used by their employees for private purposes. If illegal music or movie files are downloaded or PC games are used for which the company has not purchased the respective licenses, the company or the entrepreneur is liable – and enforcing claims for damages against the responsible employee is a lengthy and tedious affair. Therefore you should exclude the possibility of private usage from the beginning. And even if no such event of liability occurs, the private usage of IT resources causes productivity losses and related additional costs – an employee who is playing games or editing his private pictures cannot be productive.
Endpoint-security by EgoSecure protects your company against liability risks, data and productivity losses. The solution concept is based on the innovative C.A.F.E. management principle and includes all devices and data paths. The intelligent and central management allows for the easy installation and administration of functionality. Protection is ensured with a high degree of transparency for the users, but mostly in the background to not interrupt users‘ workflows – an important factor to achieve users’ acceptance of the security concept. Endpoint security needs not be a large-scale project. It takes you only 20 minutes to provide basic protection with EgoSecure Endpoint.
